CITY OF GREENBELT
The Greenbelt Volksmarch is on.
A 10-kilometer walk, an old German sporting tradition, is being sponsored on both Saturday and Sunday by the Free State Happy Wanderers club. The walk will go through old Greenbelt.
The sport, which was started in this country in 1976, was designed by Germans in the early 1960s to encourage noncompetitive, outdoor family recreation.
Volksmarches range from six to 12 miles; participants can walk as far as they like. Walkers must register, but the registration fee is optional. Those who pay the fee, which ranges from $1 to $5, will receive a commemorative medal or a credit patch at the end of the trail.
About 750 people are expected to participate in the Volksmarch, the first 10K sponsored by the Happy Wanderers in Greenbelt. The walks on Saturday and Sunday begin at 8 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. Everyone must be off the course by 5 p.m. For more information, call Paul Sabol at 345-2830 or Roger Turczynski at 674-5518.
TOWN OF LANDOVER HILLS
Landover Hills has changed the date of its regularly scheduled council workshop from Monday, Sept. 7, to Tuesday, Sept. 8. because of the Labor Day holiday. Town Hall will be closed Monday.
CITY OF LAUREL
The Laurel City Planning Commission will hold one of many public hearings to discuss updating the city's master plan at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 9 at City Hall, 350 Municipal Square.
The plan, which is updated periodically, is a basic comprehensive design of the city's future land use that focuses on zoning, housing and transportation. One main area scheduled for improvement is the Route 1 corridor, said Bill O'Brien, director of planning and zoning.
O'Brien said the city has not adopted a new plan since 1974. The commission started making changes more than a year ago, but found that almost all of the plan had to be redone. O'Brien said he hopes the updated version will be adopted by February 1988.
